The technique and the advantages and disadvantages of the procedure are discussed. In addition, introduction is made to a similar form of therapy, continuous arteriovenous hemodialysis, that may eventually replace continuous arteriovenous hemofiltration as the treatment of choice when bedside dialysis is indicated.
